Mountain scenery, natural beauty and Nepal’s first ever luxury eco tented villas – it’s time to discover a stay in Himalayan paradise
Boutique hotel group The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of The Pavilions Himalayas Lake View – the first luxury tented eco villas of their kind in Nepal.
You can access these stylish pads via paddle boat across the majestic Phewa Lake, the eight new tented villas are oases of calm surrounded by cascading rice fields and the Annapurna Himalayas.
Ideal for nature addicts, the unique open design of the villas provides unobscured views of the breathtaking landscape, allowing guests to connect with their surroundings without sacrificing luxury and comfort.
Mountain botanicals and a natural spring pool form the basis of a uniquely Himalayan wellness experience, while Nepalese and international cuisine is crafted using produce cultivated at The Pavilions Himalayas’ very own organic farm.
Whats more, both provide employment to the local Pokhara community, reflecting the brand’s dedication to true sustainability, encompassing community outreach and low impact operating practices.
If the boat doesn’t appeal, Jeep Safari transfers are also available on request, while the more adventurous can opt for a beautiful five-hour trek from sister hotel The Pavilions Himalayas.
Embodying the laid-back charm of Pokhara, the eight tented villas capture the essence of a back-to-nature experience in a truly majestic setting, without forgoing the contemporary comforts and exceptional quality of service for which The Pavilions is renowned.
Choose from four Classic Lake Villas (40sqm), three Grand Lake Villas (50sqm), or the capacious Royal Lake Villa (82sqm).
Each has been created using natural, local materials and features floor-to-ceiling, fully retractable wraparound glass doors; handcrafted furniture; and al fresco rain showers, blurring the boundary between the interiors and their lush surroundings.
The landscape alone provides the perfect entertainment, too. Spend your days trekking the mountains, meditating, kayaking on the lake or joining guided walks led by a local naturalist.
The clubhouse also offers refreshments and local treats, while a team of therapists deliver rejuvenating wellness experiences combining foraged botanicals and traditional healing techniques.
Farm-to-table dining using ingredients from The Pavilions Himalayas’ organic community farm showcases traditional Nepalese cuisine and international dishes, while mouthwatering lakeside barbecues complete the camping experience.
Dreamy views, decadent dining and drool-worthy decor – what could be better?
